About Me


Hello Pigeon Racing World,

I just wanted to introduce myself; my name is Chris I created The Pigeon Insider to share my pigeon racing passion with the world, and to share my passion with the rest of the pigeon community.  

I personally got interested in pigeons a few years back, my uncle had a pigeon loft and as a kid he used to keep pigeons on the rooftop in brooklyn NY, after moving upstate he built a loft in his backyard and this is where I was first introduced to the world of pigeons. To be completly honest with you I really didn’t understand anything about it and I didn’t even see what he liked about it. Anyway a few months later he purchased a bird from Oklahoma and put it into his loft, about three days later he opened the door to the loft to feed his pigeons and the bird he just bought from oklahoma escaped. About one week later the breeder that he bought the bird off of called my uncle up and said “didn’t I sell you a bird” and he recited the band number my uncle responded “yea but he escaped from my loft last week” and the breeder said “well…he’s back!”
After escaping from my uncles loft in NY, the pigeon flew all the way back to oklahoma! I was completely floored and my passion for pigeons was born. Not only could I not beleive that the pigeon flew that far but it actually found his way all the way home. I was hooked from that moment on.
They really are amazing creatures I know first hand and that is why The Pigeon Insider was created. Please feel free to check out the site and comment we would really love to hear from you.

My Goal,

The goal of The Pigeon Insider is to help preserve and promote the pigeon racing sport and hobby as well as bringing awarness to the general public. I also hope that this site will help to educate pigeon fanciers. I haven’t been involved in pigeon racing for that long so I still have alot to learn but one of my favorite things to do is talk with champion and successfull fanciers which I have had the pleasure of doing and sharing what I learn from them along the way with the rest of you.

Again, my name is Chris and I look forward to meeting and hearing from you fellow pigeon fanciers, please feel free to contribute to this blog by commenting and posting I would really love to hear from you.

Thanks for visiting,

  1. I do not own pigeons and I do not have a loft. I did habe racing pigeons as a boy and I have wanted to get back into the birds ever since but because of traveling-type jobs and moving a lot, that has not been possible. I still want to pursue that “dream”. Thanks for your excellent web site & postings!!!

  3. For the last six months i have been absorbing any and all information i can lay my hands on regarding pigeon care, breeding and racing. My husband has build me a lovely loft and finally I have my first 3 birds which I recieved yesterday. Im 54years old and after a life time of interest in birds in general I have decided to launch into racing pigeons. Your site Chris has been a godsend to me, along with advise from the wonderful members of my local pigeon club members. I havnt been so excited about anything since my children were born and feel like a kid at Christmas. Im actually amazed that more people arent interested in these incredible birds and the sport that goes with them. I look forward to your posts and many thanks for your support.

  4. Hey Chris

    Very nice site and it’s very functional. I’m originally from the Bronx N.Y. and I also moved to the Mid Hudson region, to Middletown N.Y. but currently living in Orlando F.L. I kept birds in the Bronx but not a real proper loft. And i’ve been out of the hobby for way too long and now i’m looking to get back in to it. This is a very helpful site and I’m looking to connect with a local club here in the Central F.L area if you have any information about clubs in my area please let me know. Best of luck and keep up the good work.

  7. Hi Chris…

    Sorry it’s taking me so long to comment on your site. I have been reading your newsletter for about a month now, and just wanted to tell you what a fantastic job you have done. I also am from Brooklyn, NY, now living in No Carolina. Like your uncle, I moved after I got married to the Binghamton NY,upstate area. I raced pigeons in the late 60’s in Brooklyn before I went onto the army and loved every minute of it. Back then, racing was real strong as It seemed every block in my old neighborhood had a racing loft. Now, after so many years I have a strong desire to build a small loft and get back into it down in NC.
    I wish you the best with this great website, keep up the good work. Your articles have defintly jogged my old memory of thing’s I havent thought of in years. Best regards.. I will keep in touch.. Tony
